Debian Weekly News - November 28th, 2006
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Welcome to this year's 41st issue of DWN, the newsletter for the
Debian community. Due to unfortunate [1]circumstances the weekly
newsletter stopped being released weekly and will only be
[2]finalised when enough people have contributed. Thanks to Sebastian
Feltel for nearly writing this issue alone. Bill Allombert [3]began
to evaluate package set upgrades from [4]sarge to [5]etch to find
out how smooth the upgrade goes.

GNOME 2.14 in Etch. Jordi Mallach [6]announced that the [7]Debian
GNOME team has decided to ship [8]GNOME 2.14 with the upcoming
[9]etch release. Due to several problems with the latest version 2.16
they prefer the stabilised and well tested version 2.14 to be shipped
with etch rather than an relative new GNOME 2.16 for which backports
shall be provided.

Give it a rest yourself.  It is fairly important for the introduction
of Debian Weekly News to explain why it is no longer Weekly.

Perhaps you prefer to see Debian releases late than to see the Weekly News published every week plus a day or two?

Now that is quite an unsubstantiated imputation.

It was a question, not an imputation, unsubstantiated or otherwise...

I like to see debian release when it is ready and I don't care when
the Weekly News appears.

Perhaps you prefer to sell Debian leadership for money, any money,
rather than to build consensus among Debian developers on how to
support it equitably?

Re: Debian Weekly News - November 28th, 2006

 

I prefer to see "etch" released in a timely manner - I prefer to see the DWN released weekly in the same excellent degree.  An organization such as The Debian Project can certainly do both.    Anthony Towns et al, have come up with something (anything) to try and solve a major problem.  Do I acknowledge that money may have a corrupting influence?  Yes I do.  Do I believe it has corrupted the process in question?

 
The question is - what can be done to reconcile the conflicting concerns?
